French national Francois Abello Camille, 65, was arrested last month at a hotel in Jakarta, Indonesia. During his arrest, police found two underage teenage girls in his room.
Camille allegedly molested more than 300 children and beat those who refused to have sex with him. The ones who did agree to have sex with him were paid between $20 to $80 USD. Upon his arrest, authorities seized a laptop, which contained footage of hundreds of children between the ages of 10 through 17 performing illegal sex acts, according to the Daily Mail.
The French national, now retired, had entered Indonesia on a tourist visa several times over the past five years, according to Indonesian authorities. Camille faces either execution by firing squad or life in prison if convicted, in accordance with Indonesia’s child protection laws.
“He would approach children and lure them by offering them work as models,” Chief Nana Sudjana of the Jakarta Police Department stated to reporters. The police say Camille has been molesting Indonesian children for years and there may be for victims unaccounted for.
It is estimated more than 70,000 children are victims of sexual exploitation annually in Indonesia, according to ECPAT International, a global anti-trafficking network.
The most recent Westerner to be arrested for having sex with underaged girls in Indonesia was American fugitive Russ Medlin. He was arrested in Jakarta last month and was also wanted in the United States for running a $700 million cryptocurrency scam.
